Topline Encyclopedia of Historical Charts (Topline Investment Graphics) by John Sweeney
John Carder is a self-described “nitpicking
perfectionist” who decided that
the charts he was making for himself
were the proper way to display investment
information, and others might find
them of interest as well. A disciple of
graphic design guru Edward R. Tufte, he
was producing log-scale charts of most
conceivable historical series when his
work came to the attention of the newsletter
industry. The result? Since 1988,
Carder’s charts have shown up in a variety
of newsletters ranging from the Elliott
Wave Theorist to the Gold Stock Analyst.
